    Without breaking the NDA obviously. I've failed this yesterday, only just 675 points and had also taken 293 on the same day, may have just been brain exhaustion! I've rebooked it for 2 weeks tomorrow with my second shot, so at least it isn't costing me again. However, anyone any tips on how to approach it. While the case studies aren't the issue, I found the time limit was horrendous and I struggled. I'm not particularly good at 'proof reading' the whole thing to pick out the specific points with that timer ticking down like the clock of doom ....

    In my opinion, experience is the biggest help to being able to pick out the relevant parts of the scenario quickly enough. That's why Microsoft recommends at least 12 months of experience doing server administration in a multi-site, multi-server environment before pursuing the MCSE.

    The only other advice that quickly comes to mind is... only do one exam at a time. ;)
